Introducing the New Dawes Lightning 1500 w/ Carbon Fiber Forks & Shimano Wheelsets.
Handbuilt advanced engineered and lightweight Altair 1 aluminum compact frame. Shimano 105/4600 has 30 speeds, gives you most of the cutting edge tech of the top of the line Ultegra & Dura Ace without the budget biting price.
The Dawes Lightning 1500 can be set up for a comfortable upright position. Want to get more serious? Turn a few bolts and you have a lower position and a competitive racing machine while still having the low gears you need to flatten most any hill or mountain pass and headwind. Attach your own rear rack to the Lightning 1500's rear eyelets and grab your groceries while saving on gas
